I really fail to see what the problem is with the label “progressive”.

Bernie may attempt to wear that mantle, but he is so far removed from it, it’s ridiculous.

Also, he is not a Democrat and the party is not embracing him. (Any of his progressive ideas were already presented by real Democrats long before he started his grift.)

“Progressive” only became an epithet because conservatives equated it with the term “liberal” and used it in an insulting fashion. As far as I’m concerned, if you’re not at least partially progressive, you’re completely REgressive, and that IS meant as an insult. We should be looking forward to the future, not wishing for the return of the past.
